339 GC Veltlinerland [0]

AND NOW FOR THE WINE – Don’t think that the seventeen fairways before do not show a nice view, but the 18th hole is just a “stunner” as far as panorama is concerned.

 

VeltlinerlandNEU1

From the tee of this Par-5-hole (you see here a picture of the 15th Green!) on Steinberg, you can view straight over to Poysdorf, you see the Niedrige Karpaten at the horizon to the left, the vineyards and hollow ways (and as per spring the club house including the hotel as well) straight ahead, the first tee to the right, which turns up to the hill. This really is a place to aspire (hopefully there is no flight following), that is why Club Chairman Georg Lackinger plans a resting area for walkers and non playing golf club guests, obviously in a distance left to the tee.

Whoever sat here once or twice and watched, how the balls dashed from the elevated tee with a slight dogleg-left-swing towards the Green, guarded by a pond, definitely picks up a sign-in sheet at the club house – Or at least checks out his skills at the 4-hole-pitch and put facility behind the 18th Green, which can also be seen from the resting area. Now you top it with the vine pest and you are permanently overwhelmed.

VeltlinerlandNEU4Georg Lackinger is a clever guy as far as the concept of the club is concerned as well. After an unsuccessful first try with “Golf in Weinviertel” – a project which failed because of funding and credit problems – he accomplished his plans in Poysdorf without any delay. All parties involved always went into the same direction: straight ahead. The community identified golf as a meaning of boosting tourism. The government also funded because Lackinger had ecologically reasons in mind (“nature in garden”). The future gastronomy experts liked the idea of running a small but fine golf and seminar hotel at the course. The future members were persuaded by the fast building progress and Lackinger’s serious way of financing.

Playground
Lackinger was able to win Keith Preston as designer of the course (Uslautal, Mieming, Ebreichsdorf, Ottenstein). He discovered in Steinberg-Rieden and the attached acres an ideal terrain (even as far as the soil is concerned). Lackinger with self confidence: “If God wanted to have a golf course, he would have chosen this place.” Whatever other designers just had been able to fulfil with heavy machinery, Preston did with just a few brush strokes: The rhythmic ups and downs and to and fro between the islands of trees, grapevines, fruit gardens, biotopes, bushes, new plantings (12.000 bushes, 6.000 trees) and still cultivated acres takes away all the stress from players.

The tees vary perfectly in height and positioning, which takes away their dominance. The fairways roll away – british-style – like at hole 13, bunkers are dug correctly but not too big. The Greens will become hard as soon as the juvenile slowness will fade away: small waves, humps and levels ask for inspiring putts. There is only one blind hole, number 15, a long dogleg left around a hillside. There, players can see the pin just after the drive (hopefully successful hit). All in all, Preston has created a sports ground, which still is a playing ground. Meaning: Poysdorf is definitely a challenge from the back tees (5968 metres) if you want to hit Par 71. Do you rather play a bogey round? No problem: The fairways are big and wide enough for intermediate steps.

Plans for the future
Even when the round in Poysdorf comes to an end – the end of the day is far away. The name of the club already shows the direction where to go: Food at the wine restaurant? Wine-seminars? A visit to a wine store? Georg Lackinger, known as Knight of Wine (this title really exists) is more than happy to advise you. If you like it even “more wet”: The fantastic spa of Laa/Thaya is not far away either. What else is there planned in Poysdorf, apart from the Wine-Cup? A halfway-station, lying behind the 9th Green with a wonderful view onto the whole course plan. And close to that, four further fairways start and finish.
